Code Name Casselberry (Secret Warfare & Counter-terrorism Operations Book 18)

by George M James

In Code Name Casselberry we deal with the evacuation of trapped citizens from hostile countries by unconventional means. In Africa, things are different than in the rest of the world and often more confused. A nation that seems peaceful and is peaceful for years may explode overnight into violence. It is hard to predict such events because the signs of unrest are always there, part of life almost. You must act very quickly then which is why the usual Western way of evacuation is to secure an airport or airfield. Once that happens, the trapped citizens are evacuated by cargo plane or other aircraft, but the airport is always protected by conventional forces (Marines, Paratroopers, led by Special Forces). The problem with this is that the technique is known. You may very well walk into an ambush when you do so. I also know that every single US Embassy in sub-Saharan Africa was studied to be attacked as well as all the evacuation routes. I did the one in Abuja, Nigeria, and all will be destroyed if needs be. Civilian unrest may well become a civil war sooner than later. If the Marines are not available, or a friendly warship is not close to launch its helicopters or the trapped ones far away from the coast, Africa tends to be far away from most places, depending, and the US Africa Command a sick joke, what do you do? Other plans are then made in a great hurry. Spies are often used to do what they can during such eventualities. First to meet the incoming forces, or secondly to smuggle the people out themselves or lastly, to keep them safe until the conventional rescue forces arrive. In this book, we see how that is done and how the unconventional forces are used in an instant. Say where an MI6 spymaster asks his local counterpart to help out and the wheels start rolling. It is fascinating how this is done. The most worrying factor of the above though is when different Special Forces Teams walk into each other unexpectedly. Chances are good that men will die in the first opening shots. It must be prevented at almost any cost. Sometimes, a message is sent as happens here with an ambushed SEAL Team, to stay away.
Description: Spymaster extraordinaire, Angelique Dawson and her team are flying a decades-old C-130 Hercules cargo aircraft into a hostile environment. They must rescue and bring out, safely, a group of diplomats caught up in political unrest in a safe house on the island of Zanzibar and another undisclosed location. The old aircraft’s brakes are defective, Angelique, piloting, with the assistance of legendary Special Forces officer, Geelslang Peter Ndebele, co-pilot, brakes the heavy transport with the assistance of parachutes, time after time, refusing to give up. At Zanzibar, they escort the trapped citizens towards the airport and safety with the help of her Assassins but are surrounded by riotous crowds and her long-time bodyguard and later husband, former Police Special Forces Company Commander, Geoffrey Foxtrot, injured. After dealing with that, some of the rioters die, they safely deliver the diplomats to the northern Mozambican port of Beira, before taking off again. Angelique heard that a US Navy SEAL Team is landing on a beach somewhere, against her wishes, and decides to ambush them with two platoons of South African Army Special Forces. She is also calling in available naval ships and air support. Foxtrot has his hands full to keep Angelique safe, she is about to cause a major international incident as none of the SEALs is expected to survive the coming encounter. They cannot survive – if shots are traded, they will be wiped out to the last man and Foxtrot’s is trying to prevent that from happening. If you wish to read about covert and Special Forces Operations in sub-Saharan Africa, the GMJ Books are the place to start. You will learn about covert operations, Special Forces techniques and military history not known outside the select few. Code Name Casselberry is the eighteenth book of the popular GMJ Series.

The Crime at Vanderlynden’s (The Spanish Farm Trilogy Book 3)

by R H Mottram

Fired up by patriotic duty, Stephen Doughty Dormer joins the Army soon after the Great War begins.

Instead of defending his homeland, he is ordered to France, where he soon to discovers that being a clerk in the war is hardly different from being one at home, only dirtier and more dangerous.

Promoted to Captain, he finds even this supposedly more prestigious position involves little more than endless waiting.

He is simply clerking in uniform.

Still, Dormer is a man who knows little of life outside of office hours and is content enough to simply get on with his duties until peace comes, or the war simply runs out of men – whichever comes first.

Then one day, a claim for damages done to a Flemish billet by a British soldier is received by Divisional Headquarters. And Dormer is assigned the seemingly simple task of investigating what exactly happened.

He soon discovers that the whole affair rests on a mistake and a misunderstanding between cultures. Even so, follows orders to track down the soldier who committed the â??crime’ at the Spanish Farm.

Every time Dormer thinks he has put the ridiculous affair to rest, the claim for damages makes its way back to him and plagues him further.

Along with the endless waiting of the war, the constant demand for reparation for a crime that was never committed threatens to drive Dormer to distraction.

‘Crime at Vanderlynden’s’ is part III in the â??Spanish Farm Trilogy’, which is widely acknowledged as one of the great classics of World War One fiction, ranked alongside ‘Goodbye To All That’ and ‘The Secret Battle’.
